Exclamation Mi-8MTV2 Cannot Sling Cargo

First, I press CTRL+SHIFT+K to turn on the autounhook. Then I go through the radio to identify which cargo I will sling, and I get the red smoke marker. I fly over to it, hover right above it, and HOOK the cargo successfully!
But the rope/cable cannot take ANY tension whatsoever. I'll watch from the external camera. As soon as it's taut, "CARGO UNHOOKED". The cargo didn't move, and the rope disappears. I've even tried this on the little oil barrels. Same thing happens. And I'll be right over the cargo, with minimal deviation to the sides. This really ruins the Mi-8 for me, as this is one of the things I want to do with the Mi-8, because I plan to get the oil campaign. But I can't if this keeps up. Please fix.

Hello, I'm struggling with generator mission of Oilfield campaign. I hover over the landing site, choose "auto onhook", slowly lower the cargo, hear "Cargo is on the ground, disconnecting" then immediately "Oh no, cargo crashed". The mission ends in failure. Tried three times, always the same (( 2.5 OB...

Have the same problem until I come very slowly and descend very very slowly.
Maybe due to the moving cargo before touching the ground.

And it only happens to you on this mission or in general?
Because it works very well usually with the huey or the mi8 on classic mission.

Mission design was influenced by cargo damage model. Will be adjusted (for particular campaign).
